We have been eagerly looking forward to returning to Gravetye and seeing the 'new' dining room and refurbished garden. It is a most stunning, delightfully decorated room, which has hugely added to the 'Gravetye' experience. We have been coming to Gravetye for many years and like so many of your faithful clients, we have shared in the ups and downs of our 'old friend. We are absolutely delighted to see 'new life' in the dining room and ,of course, not least the wonderful gardens. Congratulations to the Management Team, the Chef and Kitchen Brigade, the 'back office' Staff and not least the enthusiastic owners. In particular, please, we would like to thank Brian for his warm welcome It's great to be back at Gravetye, Thank you. Kindest regards, Jeff and Barbara Davies Lord's Spring Oast Sevenoaks Kent TN15 0NA

Gravetye is such a special and tranquil place. The gardens are a joy and the new dining room offers the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy them. There is no spa or golf course at Gravetye and long may it remain so. What we found was friendly and attentive service and superb food. We look forward to dining or staying at Gravetye again.

The stunning and inspired new dining room lifts the Gravetye eating experience to a significantly higher level than before, whether it is sunny or raining outside. My wife was also delighted with the vegan menu produced for her using flowers, fruit and vegetables harvested from the kitchen garden.

I loved the food. My partner did not. He ho ated the lumps of hard fat in his Pork Belly starter , he hated the vegetables on his main (over done ) and he found the taste of the eucalyptus in his pudding made the pudding inedible. I however had a different starter (tomatoes : lovely) , I loved the main (beef , minus cheek ) : same as his) and we had the same pudding . Chocolate mousse. I hate most of his as well. Overall a mixed reaction.

We really enjoyed the excellent food. It was seasonal, fresh and very well prepared. I must admit the service was a little lacking at times. We arrived early for our dinner reservation to enjoy a drink in the grounds, however we weren’t seated in the restaurant for over an hour. The food service was exemplary but we always had to ask for drinks to be served.

All very good as usual. Very good staff, especially Brian on the front door and Emma in reception. A few constructive comments that may improve things further: The metal tea pots used for afternoon tea could do with a lid after they are brought to the table and the cylinder with the leaf tea in it is removed by the waiter. Having no lid lets too much heat escape from the pot. We ordered Earl Grey and regular teas but the waiter wasn't sure which was which and resorted to smelling them and guessing. Maybe a (secret?) mark or collar could be placed on one of the pots to differentiate them? We had a look at the new dining room and were impressed by the lighting inside but surely, as it gets dark, the garden needs to be lit as otherwise the glass window will just reflect the interior? I am sure that hotel guests like to stroll around the fabulous garden as the light fades in the evenings but, in my opinion, their experience would be massively improved by discrete and sympathetic lighting of the garden. The garden is a major feature of the property and, over the many years I have been coming to Gravetye, it has always amazed me that there appears to be no garden lighting. I assumed that would be remedied when the hotel was closed for the construction of the new dining room earlier this year, but was dismayed when I found that nothing had changed. The resurfaced drive is a huge improvement that was made much easier to do when the hotel was closed for four months in the winter. Surely the garden lighting could have been done at the same time?
